I hope you played it off like anybody in a sitcom would: by pretending "bring out the stiff" was innuendo. Then you and your boss would act embarrassed and fake your way through a relationship while in front of the family.
Haven't you ever been taught to act profesional in your work area? YDI
Wow, this is one of the places where you should always speak about people in a good manner whether someone is around or not. It's not like the dead can hear, but out of respect, you shouldn't speak about anyone that way. YDI.
I would not work in a Funeral home for one more minute if I were you. If you can't be THAT respectful…
Not to be cheesy but as the show scrubs put it once, when you're surrounded by death constantly it's better to use humor and other coping mechanisms to help distance yourself from your job so it doesn't keep you down. If you get to personal with those kinda things it can really effect your mental state. (Sorry about shit grammar)
Do you know what it's like to work around death? There's a reason most funeral homes stay in families, because no one outside of the family raised around it would want anything to do with it. You probably should be more courteous when there is any possibility of a family being present, but if you aren't desensitized, you'd kill yourself.
Honestly that's not true at all. You don't have to be raised around death to be able to work around it. I wasn't raised around it at all and I work with dead people on a daily basis. Also working with dead people should never make you want to kill yourself. That's just completely not true.
